L'Etudiant.fr is the right place for a recruiter to find the best junior talent!
L'Etudiant.fr is the leading job board in France for students and graduates. It is not only a job board, it is a place where students and recruiters can get a lot of information on different themes (school and universities, fairs, tips to write a good CV or a cover letter, etc...)
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Originally a written magazine, L’Etudiant has been around for almost three decades. The site is for students looking for a student job or their first job to start their career. With no “About us” section on the website, the job board isn’t quite as transparent as others. That doesn’t stop it from attracting 4.81 million visits a month and from having 219 251 followers on Facebook, 63 800 on Twitter, 2 803 on Instagram, 171 on DailyMotion, 31 210 on YouTube and 7 438 on LinkedIn.
Design: To access the employment section, you must press on jobs, stage, emploi at the top of the page. Then, you’ll see a search engine (keywords), for which you need a keyword, and a page full for articles and content on employment. If you access the portal just for student jobs (or one of the other subcategories), you can browse the offers without a keyword and the search engine (keywords and location) is slightly different. In the job listing, you can see logos, publication dates, locations, company names and job titles. The only filters are the search engine options.
The job board objective: L’Etudiant (which means “student”) covers all the important questions a student could ask about studies and careers in order to assist them through their education and transition into the workforce.
Recruiter observations: there is a recruitment section on the website but there are only articles. To advertise, you must contact the team.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy for jobseekers to create an account and you need one to apply to job offers.
The job offers: There are currently 1 237 student jobs, 7 866 first jobs, 3 627 internships and another 2 090 work-linked training.
Reactivity: You can contact the team through Facebook. There are also many email addresses to choose from on the site.
Special features: The YouTube and DailyMotion videos; the articles (including some very interesting topics); the salary calculator (which gives you starting salaries based on your studies); the online tests; the app; job alerts; the newsletter; the job sheets (which include the salary, required study and information about the tasks); the job tests (to see if you are right for the job); the Instagram stories.
Verdict: Despite the lack of filters, L’Etudiant is a very interesting website, not only for its job offers but also for its advice, tests and other information. If you are a French student, don’t look past L’Etudiant. If you’re a recruiter wanting to tap into young talent, you might just find it here.
